On Wednesday I said that the Bush administration and Republicans should resist “crowing” about Tuesday’s victory. The no-gloat strategy, at least for Bush, appears to have taken hold. He made an excellent choice in this regard. He continues to sound like an “aw-shucks” kinda guy. Howard Kurtz has a round up of the no-gloat strategy this morning. Plus, he points out, quite correctly, that a lack of crowing makes life difficult for journalists who thrive on contention. Check the structural biases of journalism for the reasons.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
